Project: Language Syntax Comparison - XML vs Database
When people are approaching a new problem, they tend to want to solve it using the tools they are most familiar with. In this case, I can recall using XML as a manner of sending data and configurations in a number of projects I've developed in the past. It is something I've worked with before and the text document like data I'm working with seems like it would fit well. Once I started thinking about scalability however, the limitations of an xml based plan became apparent.
